SAIC is seeking a Senior Network Engineer for Modeling and Simulation and engineering design. Our team is driving innovation as we develop solutions for the Department of Defense Joint All Domain Command and Control and other Edge and Enterprise capabilities. The candidate will further develop next generation network model to better characterize the performance of networks using state-of-the-art communication channels used by Joint All Domain Command and Control (JADC2) such as Link 16, WinNT, MUOS and 5G. This network model will fully characterize physical channel, routing protocols and IP based communication data such as those used by our Joint Range Extension (JRE) protocol. The model will also address self-forming/healing network architectures.
The successful candidate will be responsible for design and development of wired and wireless network designs for our customers. The design activity will likely include SW integration, development, testing and troubleshooting of network protocol stack behaviors against specific network RFCs. This position will include modeling of protocol performance and development of network modules (per RFC specification).
Education & Experience:
Bachelors and five (5) years or more experience; Masters and three (3) years or more experience.
Fundamental understanding of the OSI model (particularly layers 1 thru 3)
Fundamental understand of network routing protocols
Fundamental understand of network switching (L2 and L2.5/3) and switching infrastructure
Full working knowledge of IP routing behavior for both IPv4 and IPv6 network topologies as well as general knowledge of Quality of Service (QoS) approaches to include differentiated services at layers 2 and 3
Experience developing network routing and bridging stacks to include wireless communication
Experience developing cryptographic algorithms for use in network security protocols
Experience and familiarity with DoD Type I and Type II security design and approaches
Familiarity with Link 16 is desired, but not required
Must be able to obtain a Secret Security
